Credit Union to Distribute Free Slash Pine Tree Saplings in Honor of Earth Day

TAMPA, FL, (April 9, 2013)Grow Financial, one of the leading Credit Unions in the nation, announces their Earth Day celebration in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Times titled “Let’s Grow Together”.

On Monday, April 22, in honor of Earth Day, Grow Financial will be giving away free Florida Slash Pine saplings to anyone who visits any of the area’s 20 branches. The trees will be limited to five per household, and people will be instructed to plant the trees in their own yards or contact the local organization, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, for locations on where to plant the trees.

The slash pine trees that will be given out are one of the hard yellow pines indigenous to the southeastern United States.  Grow Financial and the Tampa Bay Times are encouraging the community to plant the trees as it a great way to contribute to saving our environment.  It helps to lower greenhouse gas emissions, and they provide a habitat for a variety of other plants and animals.
